Pet Portraits are on a commission basis. While portraits of cats and dogs are shown here, Ms. Padgett is familiar with many different types of animals and regularly paints horses, wild birds and other animals. Portraits will be in oil on canvas or linen based on artist's preference. Ms. Padgett will meet your pet to get a feel for your pet's personality and take photographs of him or her in a location mutually agreed upon by you and Ms. Padgett. It is best to choose a location where your pet will feel comfortable and in familiar surroundings. Ms. Padgett will then choose a photograph to use for the painting and a layout, at which time a deposit of half of the portrait fee will be due. Portrait fees are based on the size of the portrait, the number of animals and the detail of the scene in which the pet will be depicted. Please call or email to discuss details of pricing and the process of creating a professional, heirloom quality painting of your pet that you can enjoy for years to come.
Note: Ms. Padgett reserves the right to refuse a commission for any reason.
